Unconfirmed reports say that Col.Gaddafi's brother-in-law and former chief of Libyan intelligence, Abdullah al-Senussi, has been arrested on Sunday. He was surrounded in the same area where Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was captured on Saturday.
According to reports emanating from Libya, Abdullah al-Senussi, 62, Libya's former intelligence minister and brother-in-law of the late Col. Gaddafi, has been arrested in the same region where Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was captured on Saturday.
Aljzeera reports than an official of the National Transitional Council, who declined to be named, said "Abdullah al-Senussi was arrested in Al-Guira region in the south of the country." However an Aljazeera journalist said "We don’t want to speak too soon. But the NTC has been saying what we also heard, which is that Senussi is arrested, or surrounded and is now in the process of being arrested." Previous statements concerning the arrests of Gaddafi loyalists by the NTC have proved to be erroneous.
Sky News also reports that al-Senussi is said to be surrounded and negotiating his surrender. Along with Col. Gaddafi and his son, al-Senussi is the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court in June, for his part in crimes against humanity.
According to My Fox al-Sanussi was this week accused of being responsible for organizing a suicide car bomb campaign "against British officials and opposition leaders in Libya" that was thwarted by MI6 agents.
